Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace measure strength, in a match for the 5th round of the Premier League. The record of direct confrontations of the last 3 years is favorable to the home team, which in the last 10 matches won 8 and lost 2. The last direct confrontation between these two teams, on 03-04-2019, ended with the victory from Tottenham Hotspur by (2‑0). Particular attention is needed for the home / away condition, since both teams have significantly different results at home and abroad.
Tottenham Hotspur :
The home team is currently in the 9th position, with 5 points won, after 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, he lost at home to Newcastle United by (0-1). In the last game, he tied out against Arsenal by (2-2). This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses as a visitor, with 19 goals scored and 26 suffered; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in his stadium, with 21 goals scored and 14 suffered. In the last 10 games played at home for all competitions, Tottenham Hotspur won 3, drew 1 and lost 6. The team has not been very strong defensively, since it has always suffered goals in the last 4 games, but its attack has marked regularly, as he scored goals in 3 of the last 4 games for this competition. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 9 times and only got 2 comebacks. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home games for all competitions: he scored 13 of his 28 goals between minutes (76′ ‑ 90 ‘).
The Londoners of Tottenham arrive at this match with a 2-2 draw against rival Arsenal, which added the third consecutive day without a victory in the Premier League: their goals were scored by Eriksen and Kane. In this home game, coach Mauricio Pochettino should favor the maintenance of possession of the ball and organized attacks through the flanks: Eriksen has been very important in the offensive process of the team. On the other hand, Harry Kane is Tottenham’s best gunner, with 3 goals scored. In doubt for this match are NDombèlé, Sessegnon, Eric Dier and Giovani Lo Celso.
Crystal Palace :
The visiting team is currently in the 4th position, with 7 points won, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. In the penultimate match, he won out against Manchester United by (1-2). In the last game, he won at home against Aston Villa by (1‑0). This is a team that curiously conquers more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 matches it records 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses as a visitor, with 27 goals scored and 24 suffered; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in his stadium, with 18 goals scored and 18 suffered.

The Crystal Palace is making a very interesting start to the season and remains in the fourth position of the leaderboard, ahead of the rival of this game. In the last game, the visitors beat Aston Villa, 1-0: the team’s only goal was scored by Jordan Ayew. In this game away from home, coach Roy Hodgson must keep 4-3-3, with Schlupp, Zaha and Ayew being the most advanced players in the team: the last one is Crystal Palace’s top gunner, with 2 goals scored. Without big surprises, the visiting team will offer possession of the ball to the opponent, attacking in a more direct way. For this match, the coach cannot count on Tomkins, Dreher and Dann, all injured.
